A Call to all Artists:
paint the skate park
The Cranbrook Arts Council is working with Cranbrook's Recreation Department to revitalize our skatepark area. We are looking for 5 local East Kootenay artists to paint murals on the park during this event on Sam Steele Days.
This revitalization needs your creativity and talent. This event takes place Saturday June 18th, from 2:00pm till 6:00pm during Sam Steele Days.
The outlined areas are the specific areas we are looking to get paint on. Designs must be family friendly and straightforward in concept.
All vertical areas, quarters, and most flat spaces are available. All measurements that have been listed are approximations.
One possible theme artists can draw from is the blend of Cranbrook Culture and Skate culture. What does the Skate Park represent to you?
If there is another area in the park that you are interested in, please email and ask.
15ft by 12ft~
6ft by 10ft~
